Noragric mourns the loss of esteemed colleague

Professor Schulz started at Noragric on 1 September as Professor in Development Studies and was responsible for the Masters programme in Development Studies. An economist by training, Prof. Schulz's interests and background were in international trade policy linked to development issues, and the effects of globalisation on the rural poor. Among others, he has lectured at the University of Oslo, the University of Troms and at the University of Western Cape, South Africa.

Carl-Erik was a warm and well-liked person with a good sense of humour. Highly respected professionally, he will be deeply missed by Noragric staff, students and many other colleagues at UMB. Our thoughts go to his family during this difficult time.

A memorial service at UMB will be held on Wednesday 10 December at 12h00 in the Economy building (konomibygning).
